Ok, now on to vacation. So, we are headed to California, Newport Beach. We will have the upper house and our friends will have the lower level house. But, we are meeting them on Sunday. We decided to go a day earlier and go to my Aunt Rosie's, but that's tomorrow. Then, we decided to go another day earlier. It's a 7 1/2 hour drive to the ocean from our house. It's a long drive with little kids. So, we decided to try something new and break it up in the middle.
We were going to stay in Indio, California which is 4 hours into our trip, but there wasn't a room available because of a giant The Who, Rolling Stone and Paul McCartney concert. Now, that would be cool! But, we are not there. We are in Ehernberg, Arizona. Literally, 2 miles from the California state line. We got a Best Western for $61! And it includes breakfast. Why so cheap, we'll come here and you'll find out. Well, the hotel is fine. It's a Best Western, they are always fine. But, there is nothing else here, and I mean nothing.
We got here and the only food is Wendy's which we didn't want, so I made sandwiches for everyone in our hotel room. Then, we went down to the pool.
And other than this hotel, the Wendy's and the Flying J truck stop/gas station, that's about the whole town of Ehrenberg. But, the kids could care less that a semi is parked behind them and the pool is in a parking lot. They were jumping in and having fun.
Luckily, it was just the 5 of us as I don't think anybody else could fit in the hot tub.
David and I are in the hot tub and we are exhausted and ready for bed. It's 7:05. So, we told the kids that we have daylight savings time change when we hit California in 2 miles, so our clocks aren't changed yet, but it's really 9:05. Although, we are never two hours ahead of California, but they don't get that and they totally believe us! They said they weren't very tired, so I told them they could stay up until 10:30 or 11:00 (8:30 or 9), but that's it. And they are excited they get to stay up so late! HAHAHAHA!!! I win evil mother of the year award!
